Amplify Change are a fund which aims to empower young people, men and women to realise their sexual and reproductive rights. Their vision is to help to secure universal recognition of sexual and reproductive health and rights as human rights, enabling women, men and young people to realise their full potential in safe and supportive environments. They will provide support to civil society and community-based groups working in countries where the needs are greatest, in particular Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. They provide grants to directly fund local civil society organisations (CSOs) that advocate for and promote better policy and action on neglected sexual and reproductive health and rights issues.
The priorities within sexual and reproductive health and rights are: (1) addressing the causes of unsafe abortion including decriminalisation of abortion and supporting women’s rights to safe and legal abortion; (2) gender-based violence, including sexual violence and female genital mutilation; (3) challenging stigma, discrimination, attitudes and laws that undermine human rights, including on grounds of gender or sexual orientation of LGBTI individuals; (4) sexual health of young people and girls, including comprehensive sexuality education and addressing child and early marriage; and (5) access to comprehensive reproductive health services for socially and economically marginalized and vulnerable. For this Opportunity grant call, AmplifyChange seeks to fund civil society organisations that aim to implement projects addressing Menstrual Health Management (MHM) within a sexual and reproductive health rights framework.
Eligible are civil society organisations.
Actions must take place in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and Latin America: they are specifically interested in applications from Angola, Central African Republic, Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Cote d’Ivoire, Djibouti, El Salvador, Gabon, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritania, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Somalia, South Sudan and Uganda.
Opportunity grants can be up to a maximum of €40,000. The maximum duration of funded projects is 1 year. All applicants are required to submit a budget, which is included in the online application process.
The application process is conducted online. The application deadline is 10 May 2018, 5:00pm BST. All applications will be reviewed by the AmplifyChange Grant Support Teams and the Technical Review Panel.

At this stage, AmplifyChange will contact all applicants with an update on the status of their applications.
